Measure aimed at apprenticeships creating opportunities in Montana
When the posters on NextDoor aren’t talking about taxes, they’re focused on our lack of high-paying jobs and our high housing prices—and, of course, the latest mountain lion sighting.
These issues are easy to talk about but hard to solve, largely because there’s no one answer, just small pieces. One of those pieces is a resolution that Councilor Heather Harp and I, Councilor Gwen Jones, co-sponsored and helped pass in 2019. Resolution 8356, the Bidder’s Preference Resolution, helped move both of these issues forward by making it worth a contractor’s while to take part in the State of Montana Registered Apprenticeship program.
